Bring on the 2015 Ballarat Beat!!

The Ballarat Beat Rockabilly Festival, proudly presented by The Amazing Mill Markets, takes over the streets of the Ballarat CBD and celebrates all things rockabilly; the music, the fashion, the vibe, the cars, the beer, the dancing, the fabulousness.

Come and play at Rockabilly for one day or all 4 days! Die-hard Rockabilly fans will be in heaven, and those new to the genre will find plenty of colour, life, movement and music to entertain them for hours. The rockabilly crowd at Ballarat Beat is one of the most joyous crowds you’ll find anywhere. The aim is fun and it is always reached…

The event will be held in Lydiard St (between Mair and Sturt Streets), filled with classic cars, trade stalls, live music with an all day dance floor. The street festivities are for free, whilst bands and shows within the Lydiard Street venues, and in the Grand Marquee on Lydiard Street, are ticketed.

A number of venues within Lydiard Street will host fabulous bands during the event. Buy your day or weekend pass here or, for individual performances, simply pay at the door!
